Cloud Hosting Explanation

Essentially, the actual cloud website hosting solution serves distinct hosting services such as web space, electronic mail, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting Control Panel, backup, and so on, on individual groups of top-notch servers. Each different service pack produces a cluster. All the web hosting servers in a cluster are dedicated to serving only the specific service and nothing beside it. They will all work as one single web server, sharing the service's load in practically identical proportions. If there is an authentic cloud website hosting service, there has to be: a disk space cluster, an email cluster, a File Transfer Protocol cluster, database clusters (MySQL/PostgreSQL), a DNS cluster, a statistics cluster, a CP cluster, a backup cluster, and so on. All these autonomous service clusters will create the so-called cloud hosting system.

The huge cloud web hosting hoax. Quite modern these days.

There is so much speculation going around about cloud hosting now. As you can see, cloud website hosting does not only appear complicated, but in fact it is intensely perplexing. The majority of the people know nothing about what cloud website hosting is. On the wings of this widespread ignorance, the "cloud website hosting distributors" speculate fervently, just to secure the customer and his/her five dollars per month. What a disgrace! An immense disgrace. This is owing to the fact that in the web hosting industry there are no regulations at all. The domain industry niche has ICANN. The web hosting industry has no such self-governing organization. This is why the hosting suppliers speculate and tell lies blatantly (very bluntly, actually) to their customers. Notably the cPanel-based cloud web hosting providers. Let's ascertain how much cloud web hosting they actually can provide.

The truth about the cPanel-based "cloud" web hosting vendors

If a cPanel-based website hosting distributor has a cloud web hosting platform at hand, which is quite unlikely, lots of hosting servers must be acquired. Which is also not inexpensive. We will return to that towards the end of this story. But before we do, let's see what the cloud problems are. So, it's very unbelievable for a cPanel web hosting vendor to keep the cloud web hosting platform at hand, because of the fact that creating one requires years. Even when time and the provision of an expert staff are not a predicament, plenty of money has to be spent too. Tons of money. Moreover, cPanel is not open source. That's a big defect.

The shortage of open source cloud website hosting platforms

There are no open source cloud website hosting platforms. There are no open source website hosting Control Panel devices (working with the cloud web hosting platform) either. Hence, to have a cloud website hosting platform at hand, first you have to develop one. In-house. Second of all, you have to fabricate the web hosting Control Panel too.

One server-based web hosting Control Panels

Today's popular web hosting Control Panels like cPanel, Plesk, DirectAdmin, etc. are invented to perform on one single web server only. All web hosting services (data storage, email, FTP, databases, DNS, stats, web hosting CP, backup, and so on) are being served simultaneously on one server where these respective single-server web hosting systems and website hosting CPs are installed.

The absence of open source hosting Control Panels

So, you must fabricate an in-house built web hosting Control Panel that will run perfectly and to add it within the cloud system, as if it was a natural component of it. Good examples of custom made cloud hosting systems with in-house set up website hosting CPs besides us, at Platinum Web Services, are MediaTemple and FreeHostia.

Cloud website hosting hardware equipment fees

The smallest investment demanded, only for the cloud website hosting hardware provision, amounts to somewhere between $60,000 and 80 thousand dollars. That's excluding the DDoS apparatus, which is another $15-20,000 USD. Now you realize how many cloud website hosting platforms can be encountered out there... and, above all, why the hosting sky is so blue... and virtually unclouded!
